5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best book on fishing knots, Nov. 1 2002
By

This review is from: Practical Fishing Knots (Paperback)
I've looked through all the other books on knots (and/or fishing knots), and even own some of them. This book is the hands-down winner. First, it has ALL the knots. Second, it's very specific about how to tie them, including how many wraps for different situations, and which side the tag end should come through, etc. The only problem with the book is that it can be a little hard for a beginner to figure out what basic set of knots s/he needs for a particular type of fishing (e.g., fly fishing). Although the book makes an effort at this, their suggestions don't jibe with what I've learned in the field and are a bit too complicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must-have reference for the fisherman., March 15 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Practical Fishing Knots (Paperback)
This book is one of the best sources for fishing knots, and knot tying, that you can find. The organization is such that you can find quickly several knot options for the task in mind, clear text that explains strengths and weaknesses of each knot and its use, and excellent diagrams that, with a little practice, make the knot yours. I give this book a 9 only because there are a few knots, and short-cut methods of tying them, such as the Turrel (sometimes called Turtle) knot, which are not included. If they were, then this near-ten would be an eleven. This book not only belongs on your book shelf, it needs to be in your tackle box.
